Greens on Screen’s first page was published in January 1999. Its early purpose was to bring Plymouth Argyle a little closer to those unable to see their team, and whilst it has changed a great deal over the years, its core themes - sites and sounds for Westcountry exiles - still stand. The site was very lucky to take on the content of Trevor Scallan’s Semper Viridis in the summer of 2007, and in 2009 launched GoS-DB, a wealth of facts and figures from PAFC’s history. A year later we embarked on a complete history of Argyle, with much-valued contributions from chapter authors.
Greens on Screen is an amateur website and proud of it. It is run by one person as a hobby, although there have been aspects of the site over the years that would be much the poorer without the hard work and much-valued contributions of a small band of volunteers.
Greens on Screen is self-taught and as a result, a little bit quirky. Amongst a few stubborn principles, advertisements will never appear (and don’t get me started on the plague of betting promotions on other sites). It began its life before many others, including the club’s official site, when there was a large gap to be filled, and although there is now a wide variety to choose from, GoS’s sole aim, to be a service to fellow supporters, still seems to have a place.

Full Name: Arthur Cyril Lewis
Came from: Grimsby Town Went to: Army
First game: 02 September 1939 Last game: 02 September 1939
Appearances: 1 (1/0) Goals: 0
Lewis was one of six Pilgrims who made their Argyle debut in one of the three games of the abandoned 1939-40 season.
Born in Tonypandy, he was on Merthyr Town's books in his youth but did not play a first team game. He then moved from Wales to the Wirral to sign for Tranmere Rovers in 1932, where he played eight times, but like future team-mate Pat Glover, it was a move to Grimsby that proved to be his making. In a five-year spell, he played 75 times and scored a prolific 31 goals for The Mariners. In the 1936-37 season he scored 18 goals to supplement Glover's 30, their 48 representing over half of Town’s total of 86 that season.
In 1939 Lewis joined Glover in a move to Home Park, but his first game was his only appearance, on the right wing in Argyle's last conventional Football League match for seven years.
